International Paper Plans Atglen, Pennsylvania, Corrugated Packaging Plant

International Paper, a leading global producer of renewable fiber-based packaging and pulp products, will build a state-of-the-art corrugated packaging plant in Atglen, Pennsylvania. The project is expected to create 150 jobs.

According to company officials, the facility will allow International Paper to expand its Industrial Packaging footprint in the northeastern United States. Construction is set to begin in the first quarter of 2022 and the company expects the plant to be fully operational in the first quarter of 2023.

"We are excited to expand our footprint and continue serving our customers with the highest level of safety, quality, operational excellence and customer service," said Greg Wanta, senior vice president, North American Container.

Headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee, the company employs approximately 38,000 colleagues. In Russia the company has a 50/50 joint venture with Ilim Group, that country's largest integrated manufacturer of pulp and paper and its largest foreign-domestic alliance in the forestry products sector.
